Brazil are hot favourites to win the entire tournament after winning the confederations cup in 2013.

Yet, Fred has more than enough quality to hit the net more times than the rest. Coral and Paddy Power offer Fred at 7/2 but some of the best odds lie with William Hill who offer Fred at 10/3.
Fred clearly has enough quality to be a contender for the Golden Boot and Brazil’s top scorer. With the form Brazil are in at the moment and the superb quality throughout the side, they will be favourites to win the tournament and their players should be favourites to scoop all the awards possible.
